success. you know, they are talking about -- president obama is talking about a tax increase. there are two of things wrong with that. one is that i happen to know where the money goes. and secondly, raising taxes on people is not the answer in washington. i was there when we balance the budget in 1997. and we cut taxes. we did not raise taxes. to give them more money, they will spend it. it will hurt malkin -- small businesses and hurt our ability to create jobs. that is why so many small business people have been paralyzed. and then come the regulations. a small business person, man or woman, it needs to be treated like a delicate flower. you have got to water it, you have got to take care of it called a little loving care. you do not crotchet by somebody that does not understand small business -- you do not crotchet. it is hard to start. it is hard to keep it going. but small business is the engine of economic growth. it is where we get our jobs from. yet, we have all these people in washington who give us this top- down approach to how we will grow jobs. and it is really
, so does our economy. that is why instead of raising taxes, we ought to fix our 72,000 page monstrosity of a tax code, so we can keep jobs here and bring jobs home that have gone overseas. we should repeal the president's health care law, which makes it harder for small businesses to hire. and replace it with reforms that actually the work costs and protect the doctor-patient -- lowers costs and protects the doctor-patient relationship. and instead of getting into high gas and energy prices, let's jump start the development of america's vast domestic energy resources. let's build the keystone pipeline. let's expand the exploration and use of natural gas and coal. these are all good ideas that mitt romney supports. the president obama has ignored or rejected. that is disappointing, especially considering how his policies have failed. he promised to listen. he promised us change. but all we have got is more of the same. more spending, more red tape, more debt and decline. a loss of hope. the united states senate, run by the president's party, has not passed a budget in more th
got to the budget surplus. i did not vote for the war or the tax cuts for the rich. with the giveaways to the drug companies that blow a hole in the budget. we had the biggest budget surplus to the biggest budget deficit in 2008. >> so you believe the senate is doing their job? >> i think that they did the right thing in the budget control act. this includes revenue and going after these tax loopholes. the politicians who signed the pledge to the lobbyists grover norquist -- >> i will give you 60 seconds to respond. >> sitting around your kitchen tables you can't go three months without managing your finances. you can't go three weeks without managing the budget for your small business. but he and other career politicians have gone three years since they passed a budget. he talks about the budget control act. if you are watching this, think for a second. do you have the budget control act in your small business? this is washington speak. we manage our small business with the budget. but these politicians to think that they can live by different set of rules. after y
their husband and very interested in what their tax rate is going to be after this election. >> and the number will only go up. chris: let's start to whip around. a gut question. i don't know if you can answer this but in your gut does mitt romney have the kind of support and oomph behind thim that defeats an incumbent president? a hard thing to do. if you think about it. a two-person race it almost never happens. >> you'd still say this is the test -- it's on obama's racket. i'm struck by the way in which romney as he presents himself to the country is different from the way that he was demonized early in this campaign by the obama advertising. people see him in the debates, it turns out that he's a likable guy. and chris: i agree with that. >> and sounding moderate, cheerful and optimistic and positive. that's a very different -- >> and for a reversal -- chris: they weren't ready for jekyll. they were selling hyde. >> my gut tells me no, partly baurgs the economic message has moved away from him in the accepts that using greece and some of these countries as a scare tactic to say this is why
some ideas forward about tax cuts and job creation. those who are undecided or leaning toward obama are saying they want to know how he gets this done if he has the same makeup of congress the second time around. he spent so much time saying congress has been the impediment. these candidates are spending millions of dollars on this home stretch. we're seeing it here in central florida. it's remarkable. we're going to north carolina next, and then virginia and finally ohio. right now, you've done the math a million ways, what matters the most? which matters the most? >> you're in florida right now and right now it is leaning also slightly towards mitt romney. that is a good sign for mitt romney. you're heading up to north carolina, right now we have flipped that to mitt romney's call just this past week it was a tossup state well, decided to turn it into a mitt romney win or at least that's what we think right now. it boils down to two very important states, virginia, very important state for mitt romney. he has to win it. but more importantly, he has to win ohio. >> candy, good to s
some of the tax breaks, such as the breaks on social security payroll taxes can be continued onward from december. i think that's very important to keep money in the hands of the middle class and enabling their spending, and jobs. >> eliot: all the miles you're talking b all of which i'm fully in accord with all predicated with president obama to guide the path. i agree, if he gets the second term. one of the premise that i view and i think you view as one of the misguided policies of mitt romney if you lower the tax breaks you get an outbreak of investment. there was a survey that disputed that. they polled it under political pressure. what is your wisdom as someone who has studied this in great death, would this bring investment as mitt romney high hypothesizes. >> no, between cutting marginal tax rates on the top and creating more jobs or economic growth. clinton increased taxes and we had jobs than when bush cut taxes. yet average economic growth during the years was better than it has been since. look at nations even in germany and europe scandinavia, they have faster economic
that will make the auto industry strong -- [indiscernbile] he wants sensible regulations. he wants tax reform that will ensure we can get the auto companies back on their feet. he wants to make sure that trade is fair. he wants workers trained to work better for them. he wants their energy costs now. that is what will keep energy -- otter jobs here in ohio. that is what mitt romney is going to. balks, we are in the fourth quarter. the score is tied. we're in the red zone. we got the momentum on our side. are we going to be sure that we take mitt romney over the goal line in the next eight days? ladies and gentlemen, the next president of the united states, mitt romney. b >> thank you. what an avon lake welcome. thank you so very much. thank you, senator portman, and the lieutenant governor has been going with us all over the state. her support means everything in the world. the senator was my sparring partner. he was really strong. i finally -- it is nice not to argue with him all the time. withs good to have withhim me on the campaign trail. we have got to reelect him as the next congressman
, you know, keep the tax rates low and no tax hikes so that makes us, in a weird way, backed into a corner defending the 1 #%. that makes us look like we defend the special interests. neil: if that's the case, and, i mean, i know you argue it's not true, come back at say, well, why are you taking money from the same group that is last time we checked the 1%. >> it's the obama spin. a lot of teem -- a lot of people are not like you into the news. everybody catches glimpses, short 30-second 1-minute adds, and they thin that obama -- neil: they can see pot meet kettle; right? they can see hi hypocrisy; righ? >> they can. i think this happened with libya. they are seeing, wow, you are not here to protect this. the policies really do not work. i don't think the people are neil: interesting to me, and don't cast on anyone, but if you make it a point and call the other guy a bs in "rolling stopes," make your you're not. be that as a may, a lot of money in the race. do you think mitt romney will be the billion dollar man? >> oh, absolutely. neil: where is the money going? >> on ads.

. these are decisions that have to be made by lawmakers before christmas time or the new year in regard to tax and sequester and spending. it's there in the books, and it's probably accurate. i think we let ourselves off the hook when we compare ourselves to europe. it's not so great just to be less bad than the others which is where we are. >> i want to first talk about the fiscal cliff. is it going to happen? >> no, it's not. i've been doing this for 43 years, and i suppose i should be a cynic by now, but i'm not. i'm very optimistic that this is going to be handled because a good part of the blockage was the fact that mitch mcconnell set as his goal the fact that obama wouldn't be re-elected. now if boom geobama -- if obama gets re-elected, that has past. and john boehner will have to think about his feature as speaker. if he wants to stand with the tea party or stand with the vast moderate majority of people in this country who believe that there have to be some revenues, and there have to be some cuts, and there have to be entitlement reforms. there's a rational, sane middle road out ther
. >> joe biden responded to romney this way today. >> called it territorial tax. it's the bain way. it means if you're going to build a factory you go find -- this is the fact. you go find a currentory with the lowest tax rate and the cheapest wages. build it there, pay those taxes and you never have to pay a penny in tax in the profit you make when you bring them back home. why would anybody build -- why would anybody build a factory here? ladies and gentlemen, the experts point out, that new territorial tax will create 800,000 jobs. all of them abroad. i'm not making up, all of them abroad. 800,000. i found it fascinating at their convention when governor romney said the first thing i will do when i'm elected president, i will take a jobs tour. it's going to have to be a foreign trip. >> joining me now ezra klein and eugene robinson. it was a strong week for the conspiracy theoryists about the unemployment numbers. first the theory was that the president would use hurricane sandy and its effects possibly on washington, d.c. as an excuse for delaying the jobs report until after th
. only higher taxes on capital as well as on labor. that's a bad mix. >> so that's the answer that the republicans are putting forward. fiscal and government restraint will kick up your gdp growth to the extent you'll create more jobs. ken, do you buy that? >> well, i -- looks to me like their plan is to cut taxes. you hope you get really fast growth. i think the deficit would go up a lot for a while. we would get growth. but i'm not sure it would be anything like we saw under reagan. there is so much debt out there. there is so many headwinds. there's europe, the a administration would do less on cutting taxes if at all and probably raise spending. that's really where the difference is between the two. one of them wants a smaller government. one of them sees the government doing more things. that's a big difference. >> you know more than i do. quick answer, do you think either of them will get the 12 million jobs in four years that they're promising? >> it would be a very good outcome. i think it's a long shot, frankly. >> your answer is smarter than mine. i said i'd wear a d
tax revenues ever this year. the federal government as well as states and municipalities are said to take in a total of 602.4 billion euros, which beats earlier projections by almost 6 billion euros. the government says it will come close to balancing its budget next year. >> germany will pay out billions of tax reimbursements to foreign companies. that is in order to comply with a ruling from the european court of justice. >> the court found that foreign stockholders in germany paid too much in taxes on their dividends and ordered germany to rectify the situation. the payments are set to cost the treasury at least 3 billion euros. >> the german economics ministry has confirmed media reports that european and north african countries have begun negotiations on a mass of solar energy project in the sahara desert. >> the desert tech project would see solar energy produced in north africa and exported to europe. according to a german newspaper, a treaty could be signed by early next year. the first solar farm would be built in morocco. >> could the saharan son soon be powering europe
the largest budget surplus ever in history. it's going to make it possible tor us to cut taxes for every hoosier. but jon, you just said we pay for things in indiana. but when you were speaker of the house, for five of the six years you were running the state house, indiana ran deficits. when mitch daniels came into power indiana was $700 million in debt and had a deficit of $820 million. facts are stubborn things and i'd like to knoll how are we going to make sure and preserve the fiscal integrity of the state of indiana. >> if you had spent the last 12 years here you'd know our budget has to be balanced. i produce balanced budget t and they were supported by our own lieutenant governor. i find it laughable that a united states congressman would lecture anybody about fiscal responsibility. you voted five times, congressman, you you voted and the results increased our deficit by $200 billion with a b dollars. >> find key house and governor races on c-span campaign 2012. >> an update on hurricane sandy coming up at about 2:30 eastern which up until then with an election a few days away a

of december. we have tax cuts that are about to expire, many of them, and we also have, like you were just talking about the trillion sequester cuts. all these things are happening by the end of the year. what do you think congress should do, do you feel like they should leave everything as is? or do you think, do you have any ideas that congress should put in place that you will put forward when you guys go back in next week? >> yeah, i think that the best way to talk about the tax rates is they're what we've had for 10 years. businesses have made their plans predicated on a tax rate. i don't think we should increase the tax rates on anybody. i don't care if you're rich, middle class or poor. we shouldn't divide up people. we should divide people into two sectors. private sector, public sector. i don't want to grow the public sector, i want to grow the private sector. so that means means, leaving as much money in the private sector as possible. i don't want to tax anybody any more to take any money out of the private sector. why? because that's where jobs have created. we've tried this be
energy tax on all of our energy consumption. he didn't get that one through the senate. he got it through the house. and then he started regulating, and so if you're a manufacturer, if you're a small business, what do you see coming from washington? you see more regulation, more red tape, you see the promise of higher taxes, you see a government spending money it doesn't have, borrowing beyond its means, borrowing more money from countries like china to fund its government, which simply means we'll have a debt crisis just like europe. we can't afford four more years like these last four years. we can't stand for that. the president is not giving us much of a second term agenda. he's not staying here are my abc's. he put out astelic 20-page brochure the other day, but you don't have to read it to know where we're headed. we know that he's promising a $2 trillion tax increase starting in january. of the 21 tax increases just in obama care, 12 of them hit middle income taxpayers. remember when he stayed he wouldn't have a middle income tax increase? well, there are 12 episodes, 12 examples w
have been on the subject, given how much of it we have talked about. significant things like tax policy and policies on deficits. i think there is going to be a long period of time before we will get any action on this. i'm just talking about when someone puts out an idea, which has to be challenged in congress and debated, and then you get something fast, and then you have the implementation. after all, think about where we are as far as implementation in terms of obamacare. unfortunately, i am very pessimistic about when we finally get resolution. >> yes, sir. >> i am a student at harvard kennedy school. you started your remarks talking about the incredible remarks before the conservatorship. as we think about the entities that will follow, how we think about creating an appropriate amount of political installation against lobbying when it comes to capital requirements or appropriately pricing governments guarantee? >> that is a real important question. i can tell you that during my time in the conservatorship. we had really strong restrictions. we were not able to make any political
, perhaps, in damages. that's an extreme weather tax that's going to have to be paid rather than trying to avoid the worst consequences, which would be a much better pathway. >> there are other politicians who have brought this up. let me play a couple clips from the last few days. >> anyone who says there's not a dramatic change in weather patterns i think is denying reality. i would like to say that this is probably the last occurrence we will have. i don't believe that. >> what is clear is that the storms that we've experienced in the last year or so around this country and around the world are much more severe than before. >> so if this is just the start, if it's going to be more of the same, what is your priority short term, and what do we need to be looking at long term? >> well, the american people, they're concerned about mother nature. the republicans, mitt romney, they're concerned about the oil companies that are largely fueling the independent expenditures which are going into this presidential race. this frames the election on tuesday very well. on the one hand, mitt romne
no new taxes, no matter what. but most importantly, when people say president obama had the first two years and everything, the most important thing he had was the filibuster used against him more times on this president than any other president in history. but i still believe, after all those obstacles, we still are moving forward, and there's no way we want to start all over and go back. host: leroy, thanks for the call. the lead story in this morning's "new york times," consumers push economic output to a gain of 2%, better than expected. housing recovery and defense orders also fueled the third quarter. host: back to the phones. rebecca is calling us from cincinnati this morning. she's on our line for republicans. she's optimistic. go ahead, rebecca. caller: yes. the season will grow due to the fact that i heard over a month ago that wal-mart for christmas would be training in october 50,000 people, 40,000 for kohl's, and all the other stores take into consideration. this is just a temporary 2%. my problem is this. this president had nothing -- i don't care about race, color, or c
